But the human body is a durable thing. What do you do?
You do the best you can and just live...and hope lots.
You are your own judge ,if you say life isn't worth living then it is not.
Your 'state of mind' creates your own hell or heaven. You are the one who defines your life, therefore life is what you make of it.
Our lives can be FULL of meaning, when we love other people and help them, we can be of FULL importance for other people. Your life can be composed of more love then you ever thought was possible.
You do not value or enjoy the things that have been given to you. Imagine you'd been imprisoned for 30 years without seeing the sun. A mere ray of light, would bring you more happyness then anything before,would be of more meaning, would be worth of more value to you then you ever imagined possible.
Therefore, if you enjoy the little things that have been given to you in life, if you help and love others, then you will find your life to be filled with light,love and joy. In happyness you can life forever right? , if you therefore could live a loving,constructive, helpfull life that brings you eternal happyness filled with love, then life can be worth living. Life is worth it if you live it in happyness. Love is supreme , without it we are indeed meaningless. Therefore have love in your heart for others, and help other people out, and your life will have meaning again.
lol,,,,,,,,,,oh wait, you're serious uh,,,,,,,,,,uh ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, uh,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
It'll be ok,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,just hang in there...............
Seriously, don't take life too seriously, relax and shit will get better, there isn't a single person on here that hasn't had that same thought, if life sucks right now, then it won't take much for it too improve....
Try to laugh, watch some stupid video clips, read some stupid jokes, and relax.
No, actually the human body is a fragile thing. Easily damaged, and easily destroyed. If that's what you really want, that is.
I suspect you don't really want that, what you really want is some way to make yourself whole and happy again. Not oblivion. Yes?
So I can fool myself into believing that everything is alright. This is living, now?
Which is most likely to happen?
And once I've had a good time, I still have to go home again to the same shit every day.
Its not fooling , you create your own 'state' by your thoughts.
Communicating with someone you trust, or -- even strangers like us, is a positive place to begin. Right now you're extremely depressed and that's not something you can simply control. Your perspective is skewed and you're upset. That's "ok" to be that way, even if it really doesn't feel "ok." It's wiser to feel what you do than to ignore it, run from it, or deny it, or...even judge it as "wrong."
Feeling like life isn't worth living is something a lot of us think about at some point. I've thought about it a lot in my life. Life is a very difficult thing for some of us. We have hurdles and obstacles which sometimes are insurmountable from our perspective. The kindest thing you can do for yourself is to make a post like you have, and talk with someone. Once you've talked, sit with yourself and your feelings for as long as it takes until the depression alleviates. Once it does, seek further support through a support group, church, counselor, medical doctor [family, psychiatrist, or anyone who will listen to you ]or maybe even another local activity of interest where you can express emotional needs and spiritual questions such as "is life worth living?".
This depression "will" lift. It has at every other point in your life and it will now. It may not feel like it will, but it will. Things may not be pleasant even when you're not as depressed - given your living circumstance -- but you won't be additionally debilitated by your depression.
It's important to cast a wide net once the depression lifts, so that the next time you feel that life isn't worth living - someone is there to remind you "Hey, look at all the wonderful things that happened inbetween these difficult times? Look at us, we're supportive of you!."
You deserve support. You'll have to accept that truth and then build a support system to create the quality of life you are craving. No one will do it for you, and it takes some serious effort.
For now, sit with yourself and talk with us if you like.
That is a concern, aye. I have considered all probable cases.
These all sound like cliches.
Here's another cliche: "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." In other words, every tiny thing you do to improve your well-being (or sense thereof) is important, and will contribute to your happiness.
What does your gut say about all of this? When I felt there was nowhere else to go and that I was being stifled out of life, my gut told me that I'd have to go it alone, even though it meant losing all of my friends (read: ALL of my friends), my then-boyfriend and my home. As it turned out, I'm worlds happier now, and I wouldn't trade the experience for anything. Feel free to PM me if you like.
A physical disability isn't necessarily worse.
Why would I want ot be happy? Happiness dies. I have no friends.
Are you in school? Done with school? Work? Surely you have something to keep you busy, something that allows you to interact with people and possibly make friends.
I don't talk to people.
if you're waiting for the world to open it's arms and make life fun and easy and happy and great then you're screwed, you have to go make it what you want it to be, or you can boo hoo and complain but that won't make you feel any better. I'm not trying to be a dick, but seriously if you don't try then you will always be miserable and it'll be your fault.
good luck i hope things get better for you but you gotta want to work at making things better and sometimes change hurts.
I'm not expecting or requesting anything. This is how things are.
You should. You're intelligent, funny, and good looking. I think people would like you.
for you that's how it is, i love my life
Why do you say that?
It's like that with many people.
Well I gave a lot of other great insight, but if you'd like to only focus on that one sentence, you're welcome to.
I read all of it.
You can talk to people on here and express how you feel so thats a step forward, most people hit an all time low in their lives but in time you see that life is worth living.
You want friends, go get some, its that simple, a smile, a nice comment, it doesn't take much to connect with someone.
If you are ever put in a position where your life is out of control and death looks ineviatable and not through your own choice you will truley appreciate what a gift life is.
I don't talk to people, and friends get alienated.
Death is not a surprise or something to be feared. It happens.
A textbook example of how Celexa is your friend.
life has its ups and downs when your in a down you think that nothing can be worse and that it will never get better but it always does no matter how bad your life is somone has a worse life you control your life pick yourself up and make somthing of it find a girl have some fun go out with freinds life life cause life is a gift embrace it
That's the impression I get. Your strong personality makes you recognizable on the main forum. There's no reason why that can't carry over to real life.
